Posted by davelliot on 5/6/2019 at 05:08

From May this year Indonesian overstay fine has increased to 70 $ a day .

'The reason is to give a deterrent effect to violating foreigners," said Agung Sampurno, Head of Public Relations and Data of the Directorate General of Immigration, as quoted by Detiknews.
Previously, the fine imposed was only $30 (Rp. 300,000), and Mr Sampurno said that the amount did not provide a deterrent effect for foreigners who violated their visas...'

Thanks for the post, had forgotten about this. It is now 1,000,000 rupiah per day. I'll update the visa section to reflect that in a sec.
